Hi, regarding gross anatomy are the kaplan lecture notes sufficient? I mean they dont have relations and courses of nerves/arteries or origin insertion of muscles. Are these things high yield in the exam?

I haven't taken the exam itself, but from what I've read, most HY gross anatomy revolves around being able to read CTs, x-rays, etc.

I think for Anatomy, Kaplan notes are far too deficient. In the exam I had many anatomy questions that asked for minor details. For musculoskeletal questions I think Kaplan is sufficient. Though some of the questions were not from musculoskeletal, such as asking for arterial supply of various (not major) organs which were not covered in Kaplan (those that you would remember doing in anatomy classes in med school) I don't think there is a source that can cover all the anatomy in a concise manner. Reviewing high yield stuff and hoping for details not to come up in the exam will be enough.

And what about neuroanatomy? is Kaplan sufficient?

Totally. I did not have any difficulty in doing neuroanatomy questions on the exam, in fact I don't remember doing any neuroanatomy questions in the exam at all (of course I had neuro questions but neuroanatomy is not asked too frequently in the exam and the questions are not difficult) Though I had a solid foundation in neuroanatomy, so if you are weak in that area you might want to use another source.

Thanks a bunch. Where would you suggest getting all those basics for covering CT scans and xrays? Any web source or book?

Well, I think those on Kaplan anatomy + Pathoma (or Goljan if you are using that for pathology) will be enough, especially if you have some clinical experience.

I heard that anatomy is low yield subject anyway, so am assuming kaplan + UW should be enough.
